Our entire bodies could be swapped out with robotic parts as soon as 2070, says robotics journalist and expert Chris Middleton.
He says we’re not far from a future where anyone can buy upgraded body parts that provide superhuman powers.
‘Biohackers’ are already upgrading their bodies with implants such as chips that let them open doors with a wave of the hand, so the predictions aren’t too far-fetched.

‘At some point, 50 or 100 years in the future, might a whole human body become replaceable, editable or upgradable? I wouldn’t bet against it,’ Mr Middleton told the Daily Star.
‘We can already see that some technologies encourage people – unfortunately – to behave more like machines.
‘But at the same time, machines are becoming more human. Look at Siri, Alexa, and the rest.’
